My husband's great-grandfather was a John Otto married to
Anna, and for a while I was SURE I had the right one in John Henry of Outagamie county (our family currently lives in Winnebago county, WI, adjacent to Outagamie county). However, recently I learned that the John Otto I am looking for came to the States much later (1882) and settled in Fond Du Lac county, WI.
Anyway, I also found a John H. Otto from Appleton, WI (Outagamie county) who was a captain in the civil war (company D, 21st infantry regiment). This information can be obtained either through Ancestry.com or through the State Historical Society of Wisconsin www.shsw.wisc.edu/roster.
Hope he's "the one". Good luck!
